United States, the Acadian Flycatcher is readily detected by its distinctive tee-chup or peet-sah song. This is generally a species of mature deciduous forests, although it nests in conifers in appropriate habitats in both the Northeast and Southeast. It formerly nested, as far as is known, to southern New England, then became absent there, early in the 1900s, reestablishing, and perhaps expanding beyond, its former range since the mid- to late 1900s.

The upper part of the bill is dark; the lower part is yellowish. Their breeding habitat is deciduous forests, often near water, across the eastern United States and southwestern Ontario. More

The Acadian Flycatcher is a wide ranging bird that is native to numerous areas in North America as well as South America. This species of bird has been found as far north as Canada and as far south as Panama, reaching a range up to 3 million square kilometers. The global population of the Acadian Flycatcher is estimated to be nearly 5 million individual birds. More

Acadian FlycatcherThe Acadian flycatcher is a small flycatcher. It is 5 inches in length. It has greenish-brown upperparts, a grayish-white throat, a white lower breast, a light yellow belly, white wing bars, and a white eye ring. Males and females look alike. Range The Acadian flycatcher is a neotropical migrant. It breeds in the eastern half of the United States from Minnesota to southern New England south to the Gulf Coast and Florida. More

The Acadian Flycatcher, as with other members of this genus, is best identified by song. The explosive peet-sah, and its high-pitched twitter as it flies from perch to perch, are both distinctive. It breeds in the eastern United States southward to the upper Gulf Coast and northern Florida; in winter, it migrates to southern Central America and northern South America. It is present in Tennessee from late April to late September. Description: Small flycatcher with a prominent pale eyering and wingbars. More

Bath Bird Nest The Acadian Flycatcher is best known for its flying abilities and skills which are definitely very professional. For example, the Acadian Flycatcher has been seen to hover over an area, and even fly backwards without any difficulty. It definitely can fly at a rapid pace as well. Its ability to fly really does outshine many other birds; however, there have been no records of the Acadian Flycatcher's ability to hop or even walk on land. More

The Acadian Flycatcher is a relatively inconspicuous bird, often singing from a single perch with little movement. This species is a member of the empidonax genus of flycatchers which are all similar in appearance. The best way to distinguish the different members of this group is to listen for their songs which are distinctive. In the Smokies, the Acadian Flycatcher is by far the most common empidonax flycatcher, but observations of Least and Willow Flycatchers are possible as well. More

Acadian Flycatchers are actually mis-named; they don't occur in Nova Scotia-also known as "Acadia"-but their look-alike Empidonax relatives do. (Empidonax is a misnomer, too, since it comes from the Greek words for "mosquito" and "king." Empidonax flycatchers certainly catch many kinds of flies, but mosquitos are too small for them to harvest. More often they eat beetles and moths and a wide variety of other flying insects, plus spiders, millipedes, and even berries. More

Ohio, Acadian flycatchers are one of the best indicator species of riparian quality. Riparian corridors of sufficient size and quality to support this species will also be found to support many other nesting species dependent on forest interiors such as wood thrush, yellow-throated vireo, cerulean warbler, Kentucky warbler, and others.

Features: The Acadian Flycatcher( Empidonax virescens) is a small olive-green songbird that, like others members of its genus, has a pale eye ring, light-coloured wing bars and a short brown bill with a slightly hooked tip. It is best identified by its song, an emphatic ("ka-zeep"). This flycatcher is a bird of the forest interior and requires large tracts of mature, shady, maple-beech forest. More

Acadian Flycatcher - Empidonax virescensThe Acadian Flycatcher is primarily a bird of the forests of the Southeastern United States. It is only known in South Dakota by historical records, and hasn't been officially identified in the state since 1922 (see SDOU's Birds of South Dakota). It is expanding its range to the north in recent decades, however, so it's possible it may again make an appearance in the state. More

The Acadian Flycatcher and its relatives in the genus Empidonax are difficult to distinguish, but in much of the South the Acadian is the only breeding species. Between June and August, any Empidonax seen in the lowlands south of New Jersey and Missouri can safely be called an Acadian. The Acadian Flycatcher is olive green above, whitish or sometimes yellow below (especially on its flanks and belly), with a distinct white eye ring. Identified chiefly by its voice and habitat. More
